The main cron job doesn't appear to be running

Postby ausegroup » Sat Dec 06, 2014 5:14 pm

Hi

I know that I must be overlooking the simplest thing here but I cant figure out how to get past this error. Until I do i cant set any other cron jobs

Code: Select all

The main cron job doesn't appear to be running. Please add a cron job: * * * * * www-data php /home/my-host/public_html/groupofficecli.php -c=/home/my-host/public_html/config.php -r=core/cron/run -q > /dev/null
I have searched both the forum and google and I cant find a thing which is why I figure it must be a simple thing I have missed I have also attached a screenshot of the error
Any help will be greatly appreciated with many thanks in advance

Details are
Group-Office: v6.1.7
Server OS: linux
PHP Version: 5.4.34

Thanks again
Jeremey

Put this -> * * * * * www-data php /hp/co/aa/pe/groupoffice/groupofficecli.php -c=/hp/co/aa/pe/config.php -r=core/cron/run -q > /dev/null into /etc/crontab

You need at least write permissions either to dir /etc/cron.d/ or to the file /etc/crontab. It's easiest way to add your task to /etc/crontab as I described before. If you don't have permissions to one of these, you can't get it work and you should contact your webhoster.

Having same issue. In the Admin Tools, I got error:

Cronjob: Warning: The main cron job doesn't appear to be running. Please add a cron job: * * * * * www-data php /home/reztech3/public_html/SQF/groupofficecli.php -c=/home/reztech3/public_html/SQF/config.php -r=core/cron/run -q > /dev/null

In the manage system tasks I got same cron job issue.Please check the attached image.

Will anyone help me to figure this out. I add the cron job in the cpanel cron job but it doesn't seems working... :(

Hi

We have the same issue, even when adding this job to the crontab (/etc/crontab/).

So it must be placed on a specific cron table. Which one is correct?

I have the same problem.
After I added the command in /etc/crontat, the Error message appear again.
What is the right place/solution for this?
